Right now, nearly 2,000 Australian animals, plants and ecosystems are at risk of extinction. And it's getting worse.

Ruthless nature-wrecking corporations and developers are bulldozing the forests and grasslands they call home. And our governments are doing little to stop them.

In North Queensland, nationally protected greater glider possums face being wiped out from their forest homes to make way for cattle farming.

And it's not a one-off. In 20 years, habitat destruction has driven glider numbers to drop by 80%!

It should be illegal to send plants and animals extinct. But our system for protecting threatened species in this country is fundamentally broken. We don't have the laws to protect the critical habitat our wildlife need to survive and our government isn’t doing anywhere near enough to support their recovery.

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Environment Minister Sussan Ley to:

Create a new generation of national laws to protect nature and funding to restore ecosystems to bring our wildlife back from the brink. 

Because we live on an incredible continent, and it’s our responsibility to look after it.

As a minimum we need national environment laws that prevent extinction. Even better would be laws that enable nature to thrive.

The continuing destruction of animals which we should value in themselves must stop NOW.

We are in an extinction crisis. Unless you politicians get a clue we are all screwed. The way you are destroying life is criminal.

I’ve seen for the first time the gliders at Carnarvon gorge. They are spectacular so please protect the gliders habitat on Cape York.

We cannot afford to lose any more habitat. It is unsustainable. It is time to plant… Create habitat and thereby save our threatened species at the same time as helping combat climate change. Please.
